Method makes an eco-cleaning range well-known for two things – their bright coloured cleaners in clear bottles and the pervasive, pleasant smells that comes from each of their bottles. Their Bathroom cleaner isn’t bright, but its eucalyptus mint smell leaves the room smelling clean and fresh. It is an ecological, biodegradable cleaning spray made to tackle limescale and mould found in high moisture, limescale prone areas.

I normally avoid scented cleaning as perfume is an asthma and migraine trigger for me, but method’s fragrances works well for me.

Environment & People
The bathroom spray comes in a 828ml bottle and represents excellent value for money. It is one of the best limescale and mould removing cleaners I have used without any harsh ingredients. It’s convenient, just spray and wipe, saves time and effort with little or no scrubbing required and a little goes a long way.
Product dimensions: 24.6 x 8 x 8 cm
Volume: 828 ml
Method is a reputable, ethical, eco-friendly product range and each product I have used has been excellent. The Bathroom cleaner is particularly brilliant for cleaning limescale and mould and it works wonders on bath toys that can be difficult to keep clean. It removes soap scum and oily residue, prevents water marks and leaves bathroom surfaces clean and safe for use. Highly recommended.
